JS is such a bad actor and yet I love watching him. He has a certain edge that I just find entertaining. Action packed from the outset, but Tommy Lee Jones steals the show. And, of course, it's left open for the sequel.
I never did see the NEW " Mechanic " but the Original is a True Classic with Charles Bronson, his DEATH WISH Series were pretty good as well but the 1972 Film THE MECHANIC makes my list. With a great surprise ending to boot !
